Synopsis

Cai, a young boy living on a Welsh coastal resort takes solace on the beach to avoid tension at home, where his father who has recently returned from war is struggling to readjust. Out wandering one day Cai comes across a lonely boy not much older than him, who has been living on the beach. Unsure how to help the refugee boy, whose name is Amir, Cai gets his father involved. Despite not having a common language, Cai’s father and Amir discover that they are both having trouble dealing with the trauma of their wartime experiences.

Bachgen ifanc yw Cai sy’n byw ar arfordir Cymru. Caiff lonyddwch ar y traeth i osgoi’r tensiwn gartref, lle mae ei dad a ddychwelodd o ryfel yn ddiweddar yn ei chael yn anodd ymdopi. Wrth grwydro un diwrnod, dyma Cai yn cwrdd â bachgen unig nad yw lawer yn hŷn nag ef, ac sydd wedi bod yn byw ar y traeth. Nid yw’n siŵr sut i helpu’r ffoadur o fachgen, o’r enw Amir, felly dyma Cai yn holi ei dad. Er nad oes ganddyn nhw iaith yn gyffredin, mae tad Cai ac Amir yn darganfod eu bod eu dau yn ei chael yn anodd ymdopi â thrawma eu profiadau o ryfel.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
